Re: can't take photo's
If you are shooting on the internal memory, it sounds like the image quality setting has been changed from a low to a higher quality setting. This might account for the reuction in amount of images stored.
There should be 2 settings, 1 for internal memory, 1 for external (card) memory. Internal memory is always low, especially if camera is set to high quality photos so only a few can be taken. check your settings on picture quality.

If you do not have an sd card, the camera only allows a few pictures. If you do have an sd card, it might be full and the camera is not reading it all. Best way to check is plug it into the computer and see that way. Other than that, you might want to format your card.
Internal memory is full as you have been saving pictures there rather than your card. Have you checked those are not your missing photos? Get a new sd card for your camera-I keep 3 cards for mine so that I don't need to delete anything for ages. I back up all photos to pc. The photos on your internal memory can be copied onto your new sd card when you insert it. When you are certain they are on the card AND backed up on the pc then you can delete them from the internal memory.Try mrnu>image storage. On your internal memory there will be an option to copy the photos to a card when you have one in your camera. Do check the internal memory-it is full of pictures-they may be the ones you want!
Not sure what kind of media card you are using or internal memory but have you tried taking the photo - placing the memory card - or - photo it self on the hard drive of your computer somewhere it will be easy for you to find and you can use explorer - find the photo with explorer - right click on the photo - here you can use a few things - properties will tell you a little information about the photo - you can use " Open With " and try paint or Microsoft photo editor [ the one I use the most ] and once opened up - just use the menu on the top and save it as a jpg. Hope this helped some...
Don't fret, your images are probably still there. But take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:
And finally, after (and only after) you recover your images, format your card. This should refreshen your card to be usable again. Format it in the camera, using a "Full" or "Low Level" format, and NOT a "Quick" format. Keep in mind that the photos will no longer be recoverable after doing the Full or Low Level format.
I had the Same problem..and I took 2photos and a blue screen popped up and said MEMORY FULL PLEASE CONNECT CAMERA TO PC AND OR TRANSFER IT. and I had to go back to the store and i bought an SD Card the cheapest one is $15 and it takes over 500 pictures..its 512MB.
i think this problem arises when you fail to regularly format the card ie. take lots of pictures and delete some and repeat the process over and over instead of downloading every session and formatting the card causing coruption. Also if you've bought pro duo memory stick off ebay poss. its a very good forgery (again i've been caught out by this).
hey see page 105 of ur camera manual. if u dont have it see from canons site. its says as follows:
sotry as i say. get one card reader and take back up of al the photos in your computer in which u have cameras EOS utiliys installed. now u have took back up of photos. put tat memory card in your camera and do a low level format. this can be found from the options in menu in camera.if u dont get that ask me. after formating it. connect the camera to computer and transfer the photos to the camera. your work is over i think. if not ask me. thank you
